Suleika never expected her life journey to take her from college to Paris to a cancer ward in New York City. No one expects a young woman in her 20s to have leukemia – not even the medical professionals she visited when she started to feel ill. This memoir brings us on Suleika’s journey of the four years of her “Life, Interrupted” in treatment and recovery, as she documented in her New York Times columns, as well as on the 100 day road trip she took afterwards, when she visited people who had reached out to her during her time in the hospital. This engaging look at the search for meaning, family, love, and the way to carry on will touch your heart.
